MISSISSAUGA, ON-NSK Canada (part of NSK Ltd.) announced that it has developed a ball screw shift actuator for use in the world’s largest and most powerful marine outboard motor. Designed for large, off-shore boats, this 350-hp., 5.3 litre V8 engine offers the advantages of easier hull mounting and maintenance, as well as more interior room below the cockpit when compared to traditional inboard engines, says the company.
